British Club Ladies’ coffee and book exchange

Twink Gates-Zimdar, Publicity

On Saturday, May 18, ten ladies of the British Club met for a coffee morning and book exchange at the home of Cindy O’Connell.

It was a lovely spring morning with sunshine and blue skies and, as per usual, everyone enjoyed the camaraderie of friends, exchanging tales of family, travel plans and other current events in their lives.

As well as coffee and tea, of course, Cindy served a delicious selection of freshly baked scones – cinnamon raisin, chocolate chip, cranberry orange, with preserves, strawberry and raspberry, butter, clotted cream, almond date brownies and coconut macaroons.

Everyone thanked Cindy for inviting them into her home for this very enjoyable coffee morning.
